Mount Fuji Walking Stick 2012/10/16 03:38
I climbed the mountain in 1978, the summer before my Freshman year in highschool. I loved my walking stick, complete with all of the stamps burned into it. Unfortunately, it was thrown away. I have read that there is no way to purchase one because it is a sign of accomplishment. Is there a way to purchase if you did accomplish the climb?

You might try the secondary market like E bay or Craigs list. Know however that this is not the same as the one that you had. What a shame. I got mine in 1969. At the time I thought it was foolish, now it is almost my most prized possession. I am sorry for your loss.

Been doing some checking.
They do become available.
You should check Worthpoint.com . It shows some history on sales and general info.
You might have to sign in to see the prices. Let me know how your doing. Good luck. Be patient, it might take a while.

other than people who have cliimbed many times, i can't see anyone parting with theirs...i've climbed a couple of times now, and would never part with mine.

Yes
Most people would not part with there treasured stick. However, sometimes personal possessions get sold upon death, downsizing, or a host of other reasonds, as what happened to this person. So it does happen. I wonder what will happen to mine when I die. Probably wind up in a yard sale and bought for a buck by someone who has no idea of its history. Maybe I should have it buried with me. Hmmm...

When I climbed Mt. Fuji in July the stores in Kawaguchi-ko were selling sticks. I have one now, but I'm sure you could get one somewhere online!

its offered by efsines under souviners and travel collectables.

It looks very good with the appropiate patina for its age.

Located in Maryland. Hope you can find it.
Good Luck. !
